MN350 is a dynamic, volunteer-led grassroots organization building a people’s movement to demand that Minnesota take a leadership role in addressing the climate crisis in a just and sustainable way. Programs include:
Interns will work with staff to design an internship that fits their interests and the needs of the organization. As part of building a climate justice movement, most interns will spend some time on outreach and non-profit management (including data entry and fundraising). Other potential areas of concentration are described below.
The MN350 Pipeline Resistance Team works to stop the expansion of oil pipelines that threaten our drinking water, climate and communities in MN, and keep harmful tar sand oil in the ground.
The MN350 Policy Action Team works to inform Minnesota policymakers on issues related to climate change and engage them in taking action for climate justice. We are working in coalition to move Minnesota to adopt 100% clean energy by building relationships of trust and accountability between MN350 and our MN representatives.
The Clean Transportation team advocates for zero-emission policies that can save money and protect our health and climate. We’re organizing everyday Minnesotans and communities for clean air, a stable climate, and a just economic transition from our dirty fuel economy.
The Solutions Team is a new initiative from MN350 volunteers to “build the positives” by pushing industry-wide shifts toward sustainable alternatives and envisioning the world we want to see. We are working to advance renewable agriculture, clean transportation, efficient just energy, and more.
We work with people from diverse backgrounds. Interns would benefit from having experience working in groups, and managing projects, strong interpersonal and writing and communication skills. Bi-lingual in Spanish is a plus but not required.
This internship is unpaid. To apply, read through current projects below, and send resume and cover letter to Ulla@mn350.org.
